A great show for today folks, to get you "over the hump" and then some !!
Alpine Valley - 8/8/82. Although the Dick's Picks from the night before is good, very good in fact - the final night on the 8th tops it. Who was there??
First off - two guests, Zakir Hussain and John Cipollina, who add their talents to the 2nd Set jams. And what a second set!
Scarlet>Fire>Estimated is just amazing.
Then comes Other One> NFA> Wharf Rat. And the encore - Satisfaction>Brokedown Palace. Says it all. Jerry is ON.

It's Alpine. Jerry has just turned 40. It's summer tour 1982 and the doses are growing on trees. The Dr. remembers, I think? do you?? Check out this classic show that will explain to your brain what all the fuss about 1982 is about.

cheers,
Dr. Flashback :-)

That was an intense three days. Hot sun, cold rain. Camping in the parking lot in my oh so rockin' toyota tercel.

Alpine runs were like coming home for me.

I was there, indeed. Probably the finest run of shows I ever saw at Alpine. Cippolina was a mad man during The Other One.
